(businesspress24) - London, UK, May 24, 2016 – Amulet Hotkey Ltd., a leader in design, manufacturing and system integration for remote physical and virtual workstation solutions, today announced at CyberUK in Practice 2016 show, that their PCoIP zero clients have been certified as secure by CESG, the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance within the UK. Amulet Hotkey is the only PCoIP zero client vendor to receive a certification of this type. Amulet Hotkey’s DXZ4 and DXZC PCoIP zero clients combine innovative design and manufacturing to deliver simple, stateless and highly secure clients for both mission and business critical environments.

Amulet Hotkey DXZ4 and DXZC clients have now been formally recognized by CESG, the body tasked with assisting Government Departments with cyber security, as being compliant with their Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) scheme for Remote Desktop at Foundation Grade. This is a result of a joint effort between Amulet Hotkey, Teradici Corporation, Roke Manor Research Test Lab, and CESG to rigorously test against a stringent set of requirements developed to assure security compliance for remote desktop devices in nations such as the UK and US. Achieving approval for use at the “OFFICIAL” level, both the DXZ4 and DXZC are recommended for government and public sector organisations, including government departments, the police, hospitals, emergency response, command and control centres and local councils.

The certification allows government, public sector, as well as security conscious enterprise to enjoy the security and rich desktop experience of Amulet Hotkey PCoIP Zero Clients when connecting to remote 3D graphics workstations or virtual and cloud desktops.

“We developed the DXZ4 and DXZC PCoIP zero clients from the ground up to meet and exceed the demanding security requirements of government while addressing the graphic and performance needs of users,” said David Bailey, Group Managing Director and CEO, Amulet Hotkey Ltd. “CESG certification further demonstrates our commitment to delivering robust and secure solutions for mission and business critical environments.”

“We are delighted that the CESG have recognized Amulet Hotkey’s PCoIP Zero Clients as meeting the highest security standards for remote desktop devices,” said Jayesh Shah, Vice President Product Management, Teradici Corporation, “PCoIP Zero Clients are the simplest, most secure and easy to manage endpoints with the highest quality user experience.”
